    When typing on my C312 Advent wireless keyboard I find that some of the characters have not been added onto the text document. This is most annoying as it is usually the 'i' that is missing, more so when used as a capital. Spell-checker cannot detect misspelling of in when the 'i' is missing.

    sorry the acer download site is

    Hope this helps ,Let me know thanks

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    I think I know what your problem is .....

    It just dawned on

    This machine was designed for VISTA not XP

    Check the manual out for comparisons

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    Check page 22 of the manual.

    If XP was loaded on to this machine then the install may still be missing components the machine will need to function correctly but if its worked before then ,the installer may have to reinstall the system again to bring back to factory default settings again.

    I must appologise for not recognising this earlier as we could have avoided a lot of down time from the start just recongnising the correct symptoms,

    I hope I have given you the help you were looking for,

    Please rate me accordingly thanks ....

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    I have based my findings on the model Acer 5630 posted as your header,

    thanks Misterdj

    Hi wa33ban2hart

    Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

    You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

    This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

    Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

    Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

    That should resolve your problem.

    I hope this helps.

    I have ASUS EEEPC 1005 HA Yesterday the character that comes after "A" stopped working . I have tried to open it, tried to get rid of the dust even put some WD 40 on the key too , its not jammed,...

    Carefully pry up they A key.

    You will see a little rubber thingy under the key, pop it up and you will see a little circuit board under where the A key was located.

    Very gently clean SOME of the gunk off the circuit board contact, while keeping the circuit board undamaged (I usually find a nice new rubber pencil eraser works fine for this task).

    Then gently wipe the bottom of the little rubber thingy off with a piece of printer paper (you are going for keeping the black on the rubber thingy but the sticky gunk off)

    Then replace the rubber thingy and the A key and give it a go,

    If that does not help then yes you will need a new keyboard. You can also disconnect the ribbon cable that goes to the keyboard and connect an external usb keyboard and try that to get you by.

    ACER ASPIRE 4520 keyboard problem

    In laptops with a small screen (14,15" ) the keyboard is accordingly smaller than for desktops, and there is no numeric keypads, or arrow pad. So the keys 7,8,9 0, U,I,O,P,J,K,L ,comma, dot, / have a triple function: the primary function, the shifted function, and a third accessed by an FN-Fx key combination. The actual key combination may depend on manufacturer. If that key combination has been activated, the foregoing keys perfom the third function they were designed for..
    Read your laptop manual to find out how the Fn- function key works and deactivate the Fn-Fx combination responsible for your keyboard behavior..(this article was posted by k24674)..

    or else u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram or the system board..
    lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
    if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..

    hope it'll work..
    always better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

    That means that you turned on the numlock on the laptop keyboard, On an acer if im not mistaken you have to press one of the function keys to deactivate it. Look for the icon with NUM on it and press it. if that does not work you may have to press FN then that icon.
